There still has been no decision made on whether one of the two teenagers charged with murdering 16-year-old Hannah Leflar should be granted bail.
The boy appeared via closed circuit television in a Regina courtroom Thursday morning. Since he was under 18 when he was charged, he can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
In a relatively brief appearance, Judge Leslie Halliday ordered a bail report. That’ll take a closer look into electronic monitoring and a place of residence for the boy if he is indeed released. Both boys, also 16 at the time of Hannah’s death, were charged with first-degree murder after her body was found in January. Their lawyers have asked they be tried separately.
He’ll be back in court Aug. 25 to appear in person.
